Default Intermitent Battery Light '90 Integra

Seems I recall the alternator acting up and needing replacement once
before after jumping my wifes battery from the integra. This old dog
didnt learn and I think I've done it again.
Battery light came on intermitently after jumping her battery. Later
the radio began flickering on and off. I've looked at the alternator
and can't find an obvious way to get at it for replacement. Any hints
on extracting the culprit would be welcome.
Thanks
Steve

You have to remove a drive axle half-shaft,and drop the alt down from
underneath the car.A Haynes manual will have the procedure,they're only
$20.

You sure you have to do that much? I have a 90 integra and I seem to
remember putting back all the accessory belts (including the alternator)
AFTER I had put the driveaxle back on. I'll look at it tomorrow. Although,
I do think you may have to remove the drivers side engine mount.

Scratch that, Jim's right. You can adjust the alternator's position without
taking the driveaxle off, but to actually remove it, you do have to take off
the appropriate driveaxle. Getting the spindle nut of is a real (*!(@#, and
you'll probably have to buy a new one if you aren't careful.
